La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat and Effaclar Duo!

09 November 2013

Hello lovelies, today i am reviewing a couple of skin care products, the La Roche-posay Effaclar Mat and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. I picked these up a good month ago they were in my latest beauty haul post, so i've had a decent amount of time test them out properly to share my thoughts on them with you.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat-
I had been looking for a new moisturizer to try for a while when i decided to try the Effaclar Mat. I had heard good things about it and am always on the lookout for new skin care to try. One of my major requirement with a moisturizer is that it needs to be aimed at reducing oiliness yet still moisturizing the skin well. Effaclar Mat is a sebo-controlling moisturizer that aims to control shine and reduce the appearance of pores. The first thing i noticed about this moisturizer is how light it feel on the skin, its a very thin consistency yet still does the job of making my skin feel properly nourished. Its got a light fresh scent that i really like, i also find it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy residue. I have noticed a difference in my skin since using this my skin is less oily and i love how this leaves a great base for my makeup. I am really loving the Effaclar Mat, so much so that when it runs out instead of trying something new I'm going to repurchase!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo-
I hadn't intended on purchasing the Effaclar Duo, it was a bit of an impulse purchase as they were both on offer in boots i thought why not try this one too. I was a bit unsure on how to use it at first as this can be used as a moisturizer or as a targeted spot treatment. The Effaclar Duo is a Anti-Imperfection treatment thats also supposed to unclog the pores. As its a very thin serum like consistency i decided to use it as a serum, using it before my moisturizer. I haven't been using this as long as the Effaclar mat, when i came back from my holiday i had a big breakout on my forehead so i started applying this morning and night and it cleared up really quickly. Since then my skin had been pretty clear bar a few hormonal spots on my chin. I feel like my skin is looking a lot better at the minute due to using this, and I'm looking forward to seeing if it improves further.

I am really enjoying using both of these La Roche Posay products they really are making an improvement to my skin and I'm very impressed. Has anyone else tied these products? what did you think?
